This inspirational school is registered for Key Stage 2-4 for pupils with Social Emotional Mental Health (SEMH) needs - previously known as Behavioural, Emotional and Social Difficulties (BESD), Special Educational Needs (SEN.)

All pupils receive individualised programmes which support their transition into the school environment.
The primary activity of the school is the provision of specialist education services to young people with Social Emotional Mental Health (SEMH) needs - previously known as Behavioural, Emotional and Social Difficulties (BESD.)

They work with the most disaffected, challenging pupils in the South East. Pupils have often been excluded from numerous schools and have been out of full-time education for some time.

The school offers positive outcomes to young people of school age who have disengaged, or are at the point of disengaging with education. Many of these pupils are known to the criminal justice system and a significant percentage of the pupils are looked after or children in need. Most have been excluded from at least one school.
Despite these challenges, the school supports their pupils in achieving a wide range of accredited outcomes in examinations and other courses.

If you have experience and a passion for teaching young people with SEMH needs, please do get in touch with Jamie Keen you can call on or email
